Lies that people tell (and believe) to maintain the status quo

1. It takes a many years of hard work to create financial success. Anyone doing it in less time than me is obviously doing something wrong, unethical or immoral. Or at least it must be fattening.

2. You have no control over your life. Everything that happens to you is outside your influence.

3. You cannot be spiritual and also be wealthy.

4. Working hard for your boss and following instructions is the best way to "get ahead".

5. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. (This is a funny one, to me. It seems to me that if you avoid anything that sounds must necessarily only do or have things that are fairly unappealing or mediocre.)

6. Playing small will bring you big results.

It fascinates me that so many otherwise-intelligent people will believe the most inane, illogical, obtuse, asinine, and stupid statements about the quality of their own lives. And -- for the most part -- they never realize that the lies that they choose to believe are the very things that create their fear and reluctance to reach their full potential!

Just so they can be like everyone else.

Perhaps the great doctor and Nobel Prize winner, Albert Schweitzer, was right. When being interviewed in London, he was asked, "Doctor, what's wrong with men today". His reply was quick and to the point: "Men simply don't think".

What an amazing place this world would be if men and women today would actually CHOOSE their paths and decisions based on what makes sense to them....instead of constantly being driven by their own fear and lack of courage.

Think about it...
